The 24th Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference convened at the Embassy Suites in Concord, North Carolina, from July 21-25, 2008. With a record number of attendees, this year’s conference offered a multifaceted program consisting of a sold-out exhibition hall with 54 exhibitors, a workshop, industry updates, and a full roster of white paper presentations by experts in the field of metrology, the science of measurement. The conference schedule also included numerous user-appreciation events and networking opportunities for the CMSC community of experts and novices. Many attendees enjoyed a sold-out guided tour of the Richard Childress Racing facility.

In the following video, Rina Molari, 2008 CMSC Chairperson, shares her thoughts about the conference, her career, and why the CMSC is so valuable to its members.
